Uneven-aged silviculture in tropical forests: Barriers, opportunities and challenges

With half of the world’s tropical forests already disturbed by human activities, future biodiversity and conservation efforts will necessarily involve logged or domesticated forests. The silviculture of tomorrow must therefore be prepared to manage forests with a view to the compromises between conservation of forests and their services, production of goods and income, and the different views of various stakeholders. In this context, uneven-aged tropical silviculture is an important tool.

Join the panel of experts in a debate about the main barriers and opportunities for implementing sound uneven-aged silviculture in tropical forests.
